    Compensation for the elderly injured on holiday

    There’s nothing quite as exciting as knowing you have a holiday coming up. It doesn’t matter whether you book something abroad or something in the UK, it is always nice to know you can go somewhere different, explore and have some proper relaxation time as well.

    While the majority of holidays don’t incur any problems, there are occasionally things that may potentially go wrong. Sometimes someone may be injured on holiday when they did nothing to cause the injury to occur. For example someone might use a swimming pool and cut their foot on a broken tile in the pool.

    Someone else might slip and fall down some stairs because there was a spillage at the top that had not been dealt with or marked as a hazard. The elderly injured on holiday may find an accident particularly problematic as they may already be frailer than someone younger.

    Seeking medical attention for the elderly injured on holiday

    Sometimes an accident may be so minor it doesn’t require medical attention. However there are cases where people may receive more serious injuries, and in these cases medical attention should be sought. This also helps provide a record of the treatment provided. This in turn can prove useful if the individual does decide to seek compensation for the injuries they have received.

    Accident Advice Helpline is familiar with the process of exploring whether compensation can be paid to individuals who have suffered an accident of some kind. If this occurs on a foreign holiday the claim would need to be made against the provider of the package holiday.

    Could it ruin an otherwise great holiday?

    No one wants to suffer any kind of injury while they are on holiday. However there are situations where things do happen and you just hope if it happens to you it will be a minor injury that won’t stop you enjoying yourself.

    Very few people who go on holiday anywhere at all, whether abroad or at home, will end up being injured, especially when considering how many people go away each year.

    However if you have been injured and you want to find out whether someone was responsible, you can give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500.
